Confirmed: Women exercise less than men

Women are less likely than men to exercise for at least 30 minutes daily, a new study shows.

On average, women in the study did 18 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous exercise daily, while men did 30 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous exercise daily, according to the study.

People in the study who did not do at least 30 minutes of exercise daily were at increased risk of metabolic syndrome, which is a collection of symptoms linked with cardiovascular disease, including high blood sugar, high blood pressure and low levels of “good” cholesterol.
